    Is there not some middle ground that people of good will and those who respect all rights cannot agree on?
    Sure. They have their protest in an empty parking lot.

    ....not in the middle of an active intersection.

    He should have proceeded much slower than he did, a crawl...with hazard lights and horn going.

    Common sense says if you enter into an active intersection you will likely be struck by a moving vehicle. She does bear at least half the responsibility here.

    Then I trust we can see all of them in court for performing an illegal citizen's arrest.

    Anyway standing in front of a car which just hit a crowed is not wise at all. The best way to disable the vehicle is to plug up the exhaust; the engine will stall and won't restart until cleared. At least slash the tires so that car can't travel far. Take one of those protest pickets and jam it in the radiator causing the engine to overheat and, depending on the year of the car, shut the car down automatically.

    If you stand in front of the car you will just get hit, as is what happened.

    What you read was wrong. He slowly drove into the crowed and stopped when he realized someone got caught underneath the front bumper. He stopped before running the person over. That person got up and walked away. The crowd then swarmed his car. He sat still for a minute before trying to move again. When he did move forward another person in front of the car was knocked down and the driver stopped again. That person was not run over, either. That person got up and walked away. The crowed swarmed the car again and the car drove away before being surrounded again.

    No one was run over.

    No one was even injured.

    And that would be your rule for ALL protests or demonstrations regardless of the political affiliation or ideology or purpose of the protest group?

    He ran directly into a crowd of people, they probably ended up on his hood because he plowed through them. People weren't even anger until the ass ran into them.

    That's asinine! Just the other day a crowd of people were leaving a football game at WPI. Crowds of people were crossing the street to leave. The traffic waited until the road was cleared even though it wasn't right for them to clog the street. No ass decided to put his hazards on and plow through the people. Are people that crazy that it's worth running some people down because it's an inconvenience? If so, I give up on mankind.
